Tyler Perry: 'Marriage I Don't Know About; I Do Know I'd Be A Great Father' (VIDEO)

Tyler Perry's got the formula for family life down when it comes to his films, but in his personal life, Perry admits he's not so sure what kind of family man he will be.

"I'm not so sure, with this kind of work ethic, what kind of husband I will be," Perry told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno when asked about his aspirations for getting married and having kids someday soon. "I don't know about marriage as much as I do know that I'd be a great father," Perry said.

Last month, he told talk-show host Steve Harvey that being a dad is something he'd like to see happen in the next two years. But between his work schedule -- 20 hours per day, he explained -- and the reality of being around kids, an awakening he said he had on the set of his upcoming film "Single Mom's Club," Perry may be changing his tune on becoming a father.

"It comes and goes ... I'm working really hard right now and I don't want to do it wrong," Perry confessed to Leno.
